Lives and Works: Beirut
Nada Debs studied interior architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design in the United States, starting her first company in the UK, designing and producing custom furniture. After a 40 year hiatus, Nada Debs’ Levantine spirit brought her home to Beirut, where she discovered that designs for modern Middle Eastern furniture were non-existent. She then established her company East & East, where the brand fuses Eastern tradition and minimalism. Her multicultural approach attracted the attention of the design world. Today Nada operates from Beirut and is represented globally, delivering to the world.
